Yellow Solution Before Reaction
Pictured is the solution with the starting material Sebastien Lapointe did his reaction on. This is before adding the reductant to the reaction.
“To check how our stabilizing system performs, we used a reductant, which is a molecule that can give an electron to our complex,” Sébastien Lapointe said. “Many ligand systems do not survive this and decompose when you try to isolate the reactive complex.”
